Medication while visiting SE Asia
Hi there. I am visiting the Philippines for 6 months, starting June 2015. I am HIV+ and in regular care in California. I am presently prescribed Stribild here in the US and have been on it successfully for over a year. I don't think my health insurance here will allow me to take a 6-month supply of medication with me --- I can take a 3-month supply at most, I am told. Would I be able to obtain Stribild if I go to Thailand for it (and how much)? If not Stribild, is there any other single-pill combination that is available?

Reconfirmation of Prescription procedure
Hi Sir/Madam, Greetings, I'm Ryan who's a Singaporean working in Macau. I've been recently (Jan 2015) diagnosed with HIV. I'm been on medication since February 15. I'm seeing a local doctor here in Macau every month for checkup. The medication cost of my regime is expensive here in Macau. The 3 medications that I'm taking is 1. Truvada 2. Norvir 3. Reyataz With that, I got to know that I can prescribe these medicines at TRCARC. Could you please confirm the following? 1. Documentation needed will be Doctor’s full name, his/her affiliation (hospital/clinic name), address and contact information. 2. Authorized Prescription Letter 3. The price of these medication (generic/trade) 4. As I'm quite far away from Thailand, how can I purchase 6 months medication? What will be the document or procedure? 5. I'm planning to visit on the 18th May, is the centre open? 6. Does the Norvir comes in 30 capsules per bottle? The list in your website only has 84 caps version. Thank you in advance.

hospital names?
This articele http://www.adamslove.org/en-d.php?id=444 says that: "Through a partnership with the Thai Red Cross AIDS Research Center, USAID helped set up HIV services at five private hospitals across Bangkok in June 2014 that specifically target MSM and transgender women. " But which are those 5 hospitals? Can you please give their names?

Just tested poz... what now?
I've just tested positive. The doctor suggested I get some additional tests (liver function, blood counts, etc) when he notified me of my test results, but I was too upset to do anything else at the time. Since it was at a hospital and I'm not Thai, I would also have to pay for everything (about 5,000 baht) which I really don't have right now. I know that I can get medicine at the clinic there at a cheaper price... but can these other tests be done there too? If so, what do I need to do? Do I make an appointment or just walk-in? I don't live in BKK so I would need to travel down there for whatever. Honestly... I'm just a bit in shock still and just don't know what I need to do to start the whole process for treatment. Thanks!

Some questions about PrEP-30
Dear sir/madam, I am a foreigner. I have some questions about the PrEP-30 program at the Anonymous Clinic. I list as below: 1. May I know what is the service hour for PrEP-30? 2. Do I need to bring my passport or any other documentation? 3. Do I need to make an appointment in advance ? If the answer is yes, in which way I can make an appointment (by phone? by e-mail? by website? ) 4. Can you descirbe briefly about what I should do when I arrive Anonymous Clinic? (I guess I have to go to MSM clinic on 1st floor, but then?) 5. How long will it take for the whole procedure of PrEP-30 when we visit anonymous Clinic? 6. If I only visit Thailand for a 5-7 days-stay (or shorter), is that possible I can still get PrEP-30 service? (I meet your criteria of PrEP-30) Sorry for so many questions. Thank you for your reply. Best regards

HIV relocating to Bangkok
Hi - I am given an opportunity to relocate to Bangkok but what is holding me back is that I have been tested positive. I am scared that my potential employer will find out about my status as I feel that there's still discrimination in the society that we live in. Is HIV test a must? And if I have the right to refuse a HIV test? What implication will I get myself into with the local regulation for being positive?

Health Insurance
Hi all, Does anyone know a Health Insurance here in Thailand that offers coverage in case of a future HIV infection? I am not HIV infected but would like to ensure, that me and my partner have an appropriate coverage in case we would ever catch the virus. Having checked several offers by insurance companies in Thailand, they all have clauses which explicitly exclude coverage for the most severe illnesses like HIV/AIDS. This is a total cheat as those illnesses that an individual can cover by himself are insured but the one's that go over the capability of the insured are to be borne by himself - that is against the purpose of an insurance. Please let me know if you know a good insurance company here in Thailand. If there are none, I will look for coverage through a company abroad that works by international standards. Thank you!

HIV test after 1 year
How reliable is the HIV antibodies test and NAT test after 1 year of the exposure? I had no other exposure during this 1 year period. I had many tests from your clinic. I had the last test from your clinic after 1 year which was negative too. I am still confused because I have poor appetite and white tongue in the morning too. I am still worried about my result. Can my result change in the future?

First Ever HIV Treatment happening in Thailand
I am an immunologist/virologist by training and I used to run an expanded access program for foreign cancer patients in Thailand that uses Israeli immunotherapy technology. I was very excited to hear that this same drug is now being used to treat the first ever HIV patient who is a US based Emergency Physician and he is blogging about his experience. You can see his story unfold real time by following his blog at: http://loringliving.tumblr.com/ I hope this is interesting for you.

Testing technology at Bangkok Red Cross Clinic
Hi, I recently had an HIV test done at the Bangkok Red Cross Clinic. The printed results state 'Anti-Hiv'. I was told by the person taking my blood that this is a fourth generation test which tests both Antigen AND Antibodies. Is this correct? If so, I'm wondering why you state that the results will only be conclusive after six weeks as I thought that now it is accepted that a negative in both antibodies and antigen at 28 days is conclusive. Thanks

Q: Silicone penis enlargement
Hello. I would like to know why silicone is not used for penis enlargement when it is used in cosmetic surgery for the nose, chin, breasts / chest, and buttocks. Beads are sometimes inserted under the skin in the shaft of the penis to increase feeling and arousal during sex, so why is silicone not used? Will sexual feeling be lost? In my thinking, silicone would not have to be used to enhance the entire shaft of the penis. Would it be possible to enhance only the top and sides of the penis to increase its girth? Personally, I am satisfied with my own equipment but it seems like more and more guys are injecting liquids into their penises so I am curious.

Clarity on the results which I took yesterday
Dear Team, Today I took HIV test at your anonymous clinic and the results came out negative. However, due to communication gap between me and my counselor, I cannot understand the following and can someone help me to understand 1. that if tested negative for HIV 15days after they have been placed at risk of infection. Is it possible to get a confirmed result – negative means negative and positive means positive – in this short time with out having to wait 3 months? 2. When do I need to take the next test? 3. What testing technology is used at TRCARC. I know this sounds quite absurd question but there is strong possibility that I have to do my test in my home country. I would like them know the technology which was used here? 4. How accurate are this tests? Many Thanks in advance for clarifying V G

Foreigners working in Thailand with HIV
Hi...I recently heard that the rules have changed and foreigners who want to teach English in Thailand must have bloodwork tested. I think it includes HIV testing. Is this true?? Or can an HIV person teach there without having his blood tested for HIV? Can you please update us with the latest information? Thank you so much.

Question: Regarding Unprotected Insertive Anal Sex
Hi, I am a male who had one encounter with a commercial transsexual. I received protected anal penetration from her/him. However, we both had unprotected oral sex, and I performed unprotected insertive anal sex on her/him. I also released my semen inside of her/him. I know I wasn't being rational, but what's done was done. So, I'd like to move on to damage control. I would like to know:- 1. If I'm infected by any STIs, how long would the first symptoms (if any) appear to show? 2. How long after the encounter before I should go for STI tests? 3. If so, what are the STIs I should test for? I understand that I might be a tad paranoid, but I believe it's better to be safe than sorry.

I had 6 HIV antibody test (CMIA test) ( 1st test after 2 weeks, 2nd after 4 weeks, 3rd after 6 week, 4th after 8 weeks, 5th after 10 weeks and 6th after 12 weeks). The result of all the 6 tests were negative . The last test was after 12 weeks that was negative too. All the test were done at Anonymous Clinic in Bangkok. I feel muscle contraction and mild pain occasionally in different part of my head like there is some wound in my head. I feel Tingling in My penis occasionally for 1 month. My tongue is white . All these symptoms scare me and make me worried. Can I rely the test done at Anonymous Clinic 100%? and I am also confused about antibody test and NAT bcz I got my Antibody test just after 1 hour but I don't know the result from NAT?

Q: Penis Enlargement by Injection
I injected a substance into my penis. This substance was antiseptic beeswax, which I boiled to liquify for easy injection. I injected approximately 1 tube. It has been 3 years since I did this and I have never had any abnormal symptoms and I have had normal use of my penis. What I would like to know is whether everyone (100%) who injects substances into his penis is at risk of tissue decay or gangrene and whether anyone has lived to old age without any problem?
